Adam moved to France to follow his dream, unencumbered by a series relationship and a child he never wanted. Ten years later, Susan, Jess's mother, lies in a nursing home, battling a debilitating disease. Susan forces Jess to recognise that William needs his father in his life. Jess and William spend the summer at Set in the French Countryside Sick of his lies, cheating ways and complete lack of interest in fatherhood, Jess left her boyfriend, Adam, only months after she gave birth to their son.
Jess and William spend the summer at Chateau de Roussignol where Adam runs a beautiful hotel. She hopes that when Adam meets William, he will fall in love with his son. I did like this book, there was just something missing for me. I could not connect with the main characters. The devastating descriptions of the effects of Huntingtons Disease are very well written. Adams behaviour is a bit immature.
I'm sure lots of readers will disagree with me and will really enjoy this book. View all 8 comments. You, Me, Everything by Catherine Isaac is a story about family and relationships.
Jess is trying to cope with being a single mum to her ten year old son. She is also trying to cope with the fact that her mother is suffering from Huntington disease.
Jess takes her son on holiday to France so that he can spend some time getting to know his father. This trip will be a learning curve for everyone. Book reviews on www. Catherine Isaac's writing feels so like real life - in many ways but, at its heart, just in the way she portrays dialogue and actions - it all feels natural and so convincing.

The situation - Jess trying to get her ex and father of her child to bond at last, whilst dealing with her own problems and those of her family too - I don't want to give too much away so will leave it at that - is one that no doubt many people have experienced, and it's all portrayed so realistically. I also love the characters in this novel. Jess is lovely, strong and the kind of person who deals with things so well considering what she has to worry about - definitely an inspirational main character!
In fact, the other characters are also so interesting to read about. I really like them all You can see why Jess fell for him; I think everyone reading the novel might feel the same just a bit.
However what I like most of all about this novel is that people and circumstances are never simple. There isn't an easy switch to solve everyone's problems, because that isn't real life.
People don't always behave so well but that doesn't preclude them as bad people, just as other people might end up having to deal with more than their fair share of trouble, but unfortunately life is like that sometimes - not always fair. You, Me, Everything conveys all of this without being overly depressing - there's certainly times when I felt upset and shed a tear or two It addresses some really important issues and I loved Catherine Isaac's writing.
You, Me, Everything is a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions at times, but it's a brilliant read and I loved being along with them for the journey. Sep 04, Mellie Antoinette rated it liked it.
Steps to Fall in Love- You & Me... & Our Relationship By Nikhil Mukhija....
A classic chic lit romp through the quotidian of everyday life. I am not sure I understand the recent trend to throw a horrible illness into the backstory of cozy fiction. Personal opinion.
So this is the tale of Adam and Jess whom we meet just as they are falling out of love with each other. She has a back for writing places! The Worst - If your BF missed the birth of your child and then spent 10 years living his freedom in its the youthful glories, would you take him back?
The Double Worst - Super negative narrator! Man up and play it anyway! Never know what winds up being the best thing to happen to you!
The Double Best - That cover! My precious! I look forward to more from this author! View 2 comments. May 14, Megan Prokott rated it it was ok. A French charcuterie of cheese ball and idealism. View 1 comment. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Just wow. But, I was left disappointed after this book. When the story began, I instantly liked it.
I was looking forward to read all about the heartbreak and pain! I liked that Jess raised William single handedly. I loved Jess's family. Her ailing mother and her resilient father! Their bond with William was so touching. It was heart-breaking to read about her mother's illness and how her father puts up a brave face in front of her!
In the beginning of the book, when Jess calls her mother during her labor and Adam is absent, and her mother says "I've been in the car park since midnight. I didn't want to get stuck in the traffic. And then we have Jess's dad, who is an accountant, who has taught the love of numbers to William and is more of a father to William than his biological father.
So far it's been good. The scenery now changes to France where Adam currently renovates and manages some chateau. Jess and William have come to visit Adam on request of her ailing mother. Cue, Adam!! Adam is like 30 going He is annoying, self-centered and at times even uncaring, which pissed me off specially when he put his girl friend's wishes before his son's wishes. We also get to meet Jess's friends. We have Natasha, who is hot-bigshot-single-ready-to-mingle kinda woman and we have Becky who is married to her childhood sweetheart and has 3 children who drive her insane.
Things start getting a little slow here onward. We get glimpses of problems in Becky's marriage and how Natasha is falling for a man younger than her, who BTW also has to compete with another self-obsessed man.
Too much drama! And not relevant to the plot at that! So, we get to see Adam taking some effort to spend more time with William.
We have a jealous Simone Adam's gf who is trying to snag Adam's attention. Scenes where Adam lets down William and Jess has to make up lies to keep him from getting hurt are heart-breaking. Adam is still way to self-centered till this point. Enter, Charlie!
A very rich man who is living in the chateau and has eyes on Jess. She flirts with him and enjoys the attention. And then suddenly we have scenes where Adam is apparently disturbed with how close Jess is with Charlie! And to add to my woes, Jess is also reminiscing her golden days with Adam and her feelings for Adam are growing despite knowing his history. My mind cannot just accept that Adam now is willing to get together with Jess, so easily, after immediately dumping his current gf..
Everything feels so rushed!! All in all, I think Jess's mom and dad had more chemistry and heart breaking love than Jess-Adam! I just did not feel the pain or heart break when it came to Adam. Yah, he has agreed to keep up his marriage in sickness and in health, but it seems he has got it too easily. I agree that Adam and Jess's misunderstanding from the labor night, showed a sweet side to Adam.
But, that simply did not negate his other problems and actions. And though he realized in the end that he could have fought and stayed to make their relationship work, the fact of the matter is he took the easy way out then!!! Why is he having it so easy now?? I wish Jess would have tried a relationship first with Adam, and not just jumped into marriage.
I wish Adam could have overcome his insecurities and been a deserving father to William before they married. I wish Adam could have been included in the scenes of Jess's mom's final moments, something to assure us that he knows what he has signed up for.. It feels so incomplete! View all 5 comments.
The one thing that definitely deserves to be mentioned first is how there are so many hard topics tackled in this novel. From illness to alcoholism to being a single parent to the pressure kids can have on a relationship - it's all there! And all those topics made this book that more amazing to read because they are incorporated in a real, genuine way that made my skin crawl at times.
I'm not even going to go further into the content of this story because I don't want to spoil a thing for you guys - except for this: One thing I had to laugh about but, more like a stupid laugh, was William - Laura's son - who's absolutely addicted to his mom's iPad.
I feel like this is something a lot of parents struggle with. Trying to keep the kids away from constantly staring at a screen one way or another and that was shown pretty brilliantly in You, Me, Everything. I also really loved the short chapters - or at least they felt really short to me. I only found out about that afterwards!
One thing that kind of annoyed me a bit, was Laura's naivety. It did my head in at times. Underwhelming This book fell a little short for me. The only comparison? It's a love story.
And, one I didn't enjoy very much. Nor, did I like the way the book was written- it was unnatural. The reader was told too much too soon. There was no anticipation, until near the end but everything else was immediately put out there. I had no curiosity for the story being told and so, it wasn't n Underwhelming This book fell a little short for me. I had no curiosity for the story being told and so, it wasn't nearly as gripping as it could have been. This was also because the reader wasn't really given an opportunity to warm up to any of the characters, or connect with them.
This is a story about a love surviving against the odds. Jessica is a new mother, her boyfriend Adam failed to witness their first child's birth. He wasn't there when she needed him. Their relationship falls apart shortly after.
Jessica's mother was there, Jess has come to rely on her, appreciate her more. Shortly after, her mother is diagnosed with Huntington's Disease. Ten Years Later: Jessica thinks she ought to reignite the relationship between her son and his father, for practical reasons. They're going to spend a holiday together.
Things have changed: Adam has a girlfriend and his life is in France. In short: But for how long? This is a heart warming story, I sympathised completely with the family but where the author was striving to be funny, or make light of situations it didn't work. This story was much too serious for my taste.
I also didn't like the choice Jess ultimately made, it didn't feel fully justified and it seemed like it was based on their intimacy.
But begrudgingly, I could understand her desire to reunite her son with his father. It suggested responsibility but doing what she ultimately did felt out of character. It was unexplained, but the author knows the characters better. Also disagree with the sentiment 'When you are surrounded by love, you have nothing to fear. The sentiment almost tempts fate, something I fiercely despise.
I found a lot of the dialogue was guilty of the same crime. Telling someone it will all be okay, that they will have a good life- when life is by nature uncertain- is high on my list of pet-peeves.

What a brilliantly written, lovely book. Just make sure you have the tissues handy though as it WILL make you laugh and cry throughout its pages. Jun 18, Stacey A. This was a DNF for me.

One of the above Mentioned Chapter
So why did I bother? Because I'm a sucker for books set in France, either historic or contemporary, even when I've often been disappointed. The setting for this insipid tale is a chateau in the Dordogne with the improbable name of Chateau de Roussignol--perhaps the author was going for "rossignol," which means nightingale?
Irrelevant, since neither the chateau now turned renovated hotel by Adam, the main character Jess's boyfriend and father of her son. That much is accurate since this region of France is literally overrun by Brits and Belgians scarfing up the real estate.
The rest of the alleged French atmosphere? Alas, it is subsumed by the most unlikable, smarmy, selfish, and self-centered collection of characters I've encountered since, oh, I don't know--the last yukky book I read?
The allegedly heart-rending issue of disease is as about as moving as a Lifetime Disease-of-the-Week movie, and the way this cardboard trio of characters handle it is decidedly heavy-handed and oh-so-predictable. I knew where this was headed by the first third of the book, and debated bailing out then. But like a toothache that hurts when you mess with it and you just can't stop, the book led me on if only to see if somewhere, at some point there might be a surprise.
Go read some of the breathless positive reviews, of which there are plenty, to get a glimpse of the plot, the characters, and all that other stuff that 1is really a book report masquerading as a book review. I will stick to my opinion that the first several chapters, which are supposed to pull a reader in, were a mess of telling with nary a bit of showing to be found, backstory by the boatload, and page after page of some of the most wooden, stilted, and amateurish dialogue imaginable.

The setting of the book takes place in the French countryside and you can't help but want to be there with the characters. The story revolves around Jess and Adam and their son William. Adam has never been an ideal father, leaving shortly after his birth and only seeing him a few times a year since.
Jess wants more for her son and is making one last attempt to make things right between everyone all while holding back a secret of her own. Overall, I enj I'm going to keep this one short and sweet. Overall, I enjoyed the premise and loved the setting, but never felt a strong connection to the characters which ultimately left me disappointed.

I just need to take a little breath before I write this review, because this book is just so incredibly gorgeous. It is such a beautiful book. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and I fell in love with all of the characters. I couldn't focus on anything else while I read this book, set in the beautiful Chateau de Roussignol, in the French countryside.
It waa all consuming. It's a book about lost love, about paternal lov, about the love between mother and daughter, and the love that ru Oh My Heart! It's a book about lost love, about paternal lov, about the love between mother and daughter, and the love that runs thriugh the veins of a family. It is a love story on so many different levels, and as you can probably tell, I loved it! The novel begins with Jess giving birth to William. A baby that Adam was unprepared for, and whom he left behind not long after the birth.
It was Jess's mother and father who supported her for the fhrst ten years of William's life. Then fast forward ten years and we have the situation that is now. Jess wants her son to form a relationship with his father, and so she makes the decision to holiday in France, where Adam now lives and works. During Jess and William's summer vacation to reconnect with Adam, their lives will change forever. That is all I will say. I don't want to give anything away. This is such a delightful read. The writing is beautiful, lyrical and so very down to earth.
The characters are real on the page, and Jess in particular completely resonated with me. I understood completely her motives for wanting her son to have a proper family, and to bond with his father.
I alao had a soft spot for William. As a mum to two boys, aged 11 and nearly 10, his mannerisms, language and emotions really touched me. I just wanted to put my arms around this little boy and tell him that everything would be OK. I really did go through a whole range of emotions, while reading You Me Everything. This book is both heartbreaking, yet hopeful, romantic and practical.

I did like this book, there was just something missing for me. May 01, Pages download. I loved this book, i loved the way the story was told and I loved Jess as a lead character.
It's a bittersweet read, but its greatest accomplishment is in teaching readers how to appreciate their closest relationships in the moment.
